Diversity Advisor Training
December 11, 2020

As faculty, at some point we are called upon to assist with recruitment of staff, trainees and/or faculty. Creating a recruitment, screening, and hiring process that values diversity, equity and inclusion is an intentional effort that requires support. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is hosting a diversity advisor training for P&I to help us ensure that best practices are utilized throughout the hiring process. After the training you will have access to a Toolkit with practical tools to utilize during the process.

Diversity 3.0 Commitment

We accomplish this goal through interactive media, positive response techniques, and activities that encourage empathetic understanding through exploring real life identities.
